Intuit Pushes Pricey TurboTax Programs

Paul Farrell

Management has historically provided preliminary consumer tax season results in late April (typically in the fourth week of the month), which provide an update on units sold by product type during the season, as well as an update to guidance, if necessary. Then, in late May, Intuit announces its third-quarter results. In our view, most investors are already pricing in some level of consumer tax outperformance, given that the stock is trading at approximately 38 times calendar-year 2019 estimated earnings per share (2.7 times PEG), compared to large-cap software peers at 2.8 times PEG.
